£47,634 per annum plus additional benefits
Based in Nottingham City Centre
The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) is one of the principal investigative law enforcement bodies for labour exploitation in the UK. We are a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Home Office. We also licence labour providers in certain employment sectors and enforce the provisions of the Gangmasters (Licensing) Act 2004.
In addition to Gangmasters licensing legislation, we have powers to ensure vulnerable workers are more effectively protected from being abused for their labour, such as police-style powers of arrest, and increased powers to search for and seize evidence. The GLAA is able to investigate labour exploitation offences under National Minimum Wage, Employment Agencies as well as Modern Slavery Act.
As an ‘intelligence-led’ organisation, we rely and act upon information from workers, businesses, members of the public and partner agencies about non-compliance with regulations, unlicensed activity, or other labour market offences where it relates to labour exploitation.
